He is not ashamed of us

A.B. Simpsonby A.B. Simpson

Now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be —1 John 3:2

We are the sons of God. We are not merely called such or even legally declared so, but we actually are sons of God by receiving the life and nature of God. And so we are the very brethren of our Lord, not only in His human nature, but still more so in His divine relationship.

Therefore, he is not ashamed to call [us] brethren (Hebrews 2:11). He gives us that which entitles us to that right, and makes us worthy of it. He does not introduce us into a position for which we are uneducated and unfitted, but He gives us a nature worthy of our glorious standing; and as He shall look upon us in our complete and glorious exaltation-reflecting His own likeness and shining in His Father’s glory-He shall have no cause to be ashamed of us.

Even now He is pleased to acknowledge us before the universe and call us brethren in the sight of all earth and heaven. oh, how this dignifies the humblest saint of God! How little we need mind the misunderstanding of the world if He is not ashamed to call [us] brethren.

So let us go out today to rightly represent His royal family.

The Child of Satan!

James Smith 90x115by James Smith

"The Love of Christ! The Fullness, Freeness, and Immutability of the Savior’s Grace Displayed!"

"For all who are led by the Spirit of God–are children of God!" Romans 8:14

If we are sons of God–we shall be led by the Spirit of God. And if we are led by the Spirit of God–we shall be led in the paths of righteousness and holiness!

The sons of God do not, cannot–love sin, live in sin, or make light of sin! He who loves and lives in sin–is the child of Satan!
